Arabian Sunset Horse Riding & Stable Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Start your Arabian horseback riding tour with an afternoon pickup from your hotel and relax during the 20-minute drive to the stables near the Bahrain Fort - a UNESCO World Heritage Site (2005). On arrival at the stables, you’ll sit down for a traditional Arabic coffee or tea accompanied by local delicacies (choose "snack package").

    Explore for yourself the "land of immortality", the ancestral place of Sumerians and a meeting point of gods according to the  Epic of Gilgamesh.

    While professionals prepare the horses for the trail ride, take in the serenity of the majestic surroundings, where heritage and modern times meet. You’ll be paired with a tame horse that is well-suited to your skill level for the approximate 1-hour ride.  After a safety briefing follow the same horse trails once used by Kassites, Greeks, Portuguese and Persians dating back from 2300 BC.

    During the horseback trail ride, you’re surrounded by gorgeous views of the Bahrain Fort, silhouetted against the sunset. As dusk descends, marvel at the orange glow under open skies and head towards the shore of the Karbabad beach past the fort museum. 

    Keep your camera on hand to capture photos of breathtaking sunset behind the 500 year old fort and, if you have a keen eye, spot the Manama skyscraper skyline in the distance. After your horseback ride, head over to the stables lounge for some snacks and prepare to wear traditional Bahraini attire for photos next to a fully decorated native costume Arabian Stallion (choose Photo-Op package) and learn more about these beautiful creatures from the real life stories of a local Bahraini equestrian jumping champion "The Captain".   

    You’ll return to your hotel with plenty of time left in the day to experience more of Manama.

    Please Note: This is a single-file trail ride. Due to safety regulations, guests are not permitted to run or gallop the horses on the trail.

    Sadly the times of our horse ride were moved a few times by the organisers and we were picked up eventually at 1.30pm for a sunset ride (in June!), therefore it was far too hot and early for us in the day (and the horses!) to go out. We are awaiting our return of monies as we

    The Sunset Horse-riding is one of our most favorite and wonderful activity on our list. We are so sorry you didn't get to experience it as it should be due to the heat & timing. Very rarely do we get the logistics wrong and a full refund has been made. We hope to have the opportunity to give you this breathtaking experience at no cost next time you're on the island. It's a must! Still, thank you for your kind review. Your feedback means the world to us.

    I enjoy horseback riding and since I am here in Bahrain for a while I decided to sign up for this trip. I was picked up at the hotel and driven to the stables where I was able to see the horses and asked if I had any riding experience. Since I do have experience I was then
